Made of stone

Matt Corby – Made of stone

See I left my mothers heart
See I left my fathers home
And I fell into a well of hope

I’m carrying my heart but it’s made of stone
I’m carrying my heart but my heart is made of stone

See I left my mothers heart
See I left my fathers home
And I fell into a well of hope

I’m carrying my heart but it’s made of stone
I’m carrying my heart but my heart is made of stone
I’m carrying my heart but it’s made of stone
oh I’m carrying my heart but my heart is made of stone

Oooh ohhwooahh oooooah aoowoahh
ooooohhh wooaahh ooooooohh oooooaahhh………

Bashung – Danse d’ici

Bashung – Danse d’ici

J’ai beau me creuser
M’inoculer du sucre candi
Du sérum physiologique
J’ai mauvaise mine
Les danses d’ici
Se différencient
Des danses du ventre
Mouillent la redingote
Parfois la chemise
Je peux pas m’empêcher
De m’empêtrer
Dans ton chandail

Aller au charbon
Aller aux ouailles
Chercher la houille

J’ai beau invoquer
Interroger mes cellules grises
Sophistiquer l’attirail
Les danses d’ici
Versent des litanies
Emblèmes problèmes
De camélias qui m’oxydent
Il manque un wagon
Un boute-en-train
Des victuailles

Aller au charbon
Aller aux ouailles
Chercher la houille
Et pour finir
Recommencer
Se lever tôt
Ne rien retenir

Tout ceic n’est
Pas pour me déplaire
C’est de l’orangeade
Qui perle à mon front
Les yeux me piquent
Et je pars me frotter l’abdomen
Aux Comores

Aller au charbon
Aller aux ouailles
Chercher la houille
Et pour finir
Recommencer
Se lever tôt
Ne rien retenir

Sufjan Stevens – Chicago (acoustic)

Sufjan Stevens – Chicago

I fell in love again
All things go, all things go
Drove to Chicago
All things know, all things know
We sold our clothes to the state
I don’t mind, I don’t mind
I made a lot of mistakes
In my mind, in my mind

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
All things know, all things know
You had to find it
All things go, all things go

I drove to New York
In a van with my friend
We slept in parking lots
I don’t mind, I don’t mind
I was in love with the place
In my mind, in my mind
I made a lot of mistakes
In my mind, in my mind

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
All things know, all things know
You had to find it
All things go, all things go

If I was crying
In the van with my friend
It was for freedom
From myself and from the land
I made a lot of mistakes
I made a lot of mistakes
I made a lot of mistakes
I made a lot of mistakes

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset
All things know, all things know
You had to find it
All things go, all things go

You came to take us
All things go, all things go
To recreate us
All things grow, all things grow
We had our mindset (I made a lot of mistakes)
All things know, all things know (I made a lot of mistakes)
You had to find it (I made a lot of mistakes)
All things go, all things go (I made a lot of mistakes)

Stealing sheep – Shut eye

Stealing sheep – Shut eye

You should’ve got a better bed
Better for your head
Better heads need shut eye

You should’ve got a better bed
Better for your head
Better heads need shut eye
You should’ve got out of the red
In the red you’re better off dead
Deader than the red dead sea
Promise it to me
Promise me the sea

You should’ve got a better bed
Better for your head
Better heads need shut eye
You should’ve got out of the red
In the red you’re better off dead
Deader than the red dead sea
Promise it to me
Promise me the sea

People all the people with big bellies banging bigger drums
They beat down on you they beat the pulse into your shoes
Shoes that are made for walking you to lands and other seas
See those seas of see those seas that you’ve seen on the big screen

You should’ve got a better bed
Better for your head
Better heads need shut eye
You should’ve got out of the red
In the red you’re better off dead
Deader than the red dead sea
Promise it to me
Promise me the sea

Sad hello’s and mad high lows
Now i know not nobody knows
Sad hello’s and mad high lows
Now i know not nobody knows
Where do we go?
Oh where do we go?

People all the people with big bellies banging bigger drums
They beat down on you they beat the pulse into your shoes
Shoes that are made for walking you to lands and other seas
See those seas of see those seas that you’ve seen on the big screen

People all the people with big bellies banging bigger drums
They beat down on you they beat the pulse into your shoes
Shoes that are made for walking you to lands and other seas
See those seas of see those seas that you’ve seen on the big screen

Plain gold ring

Nina Simone – Plain gold ring

Plain gold ring on his finger he wore
It was where everyone could see
He loved somebody, but it wasn’t me

On his hand was a plain golden ring
On his hand was a plain golden ring

Plain gold ring had a story to tell
It was one that I knew very well
In my heart it will never be spring
Long as he wears a plain golden ring

Long as he wears a plain golden ring
Long as he wears a plain golden ring
Long as he wears a plain golden ring

When nighttime comes callin’ on me
I know, why I will never be free
I can’t stop these teardrops of mine
So I’m gonna love him till the end of time

Plain gold ring has but one thing to say
I’ll remember till my dyin’ day
In my heart it will never be spring
In my heart it will never be spring

Long as he wears a plain golden ring
Long as he wears a plain golden ring
Long as he wears a plain golden ring

Plain gold ring on his finger he wore
Plain gold ring on his finger he wore
Plain gold ring on his finger he wore
Plain gold ring on his finger he wore

Father Lucifer

Tori Amos – « Father Lucifer »

Father Lucifer

You never looked so sane
You always did prefer the drizzle to the rain
Tell me that you’re still in love with that Milkmaid
How’s the Lizzies
How’s your Jesus christ been hanging
Nothings gonna stop me from floating
Nothings gonna stop me from floatingHe says he reckons I’m a watercolour stain
He says I run and then I run from him
And then I run
He didn’t see me watching
From the aeroplane
He wiped a tear
And then he threw away our appleseed

Nothings gonna stop me from floating
Nothings gonna stop me from floating

Everyday’s my wedding day
Though baby’s still in his comatose state
I’ll die my own Easter eggs
Don’t go yet
Just don’t go
And Beenie lost the sunset but that’s OK
Does Joe bring flowers to Marilyn’s grave
And girls that eat pizza and never gain weight
Never gain weight
Never gain weight
Father Lucifer you never looked so sane
You always did prefer the drizzle to the rain
Tell me that you’re still in love with that milkmaid
How’s the Lizzies
How’s your Jesus Christ been hanging

The woman in you

 

 

Ben Harper – The woman in you

Could’ve sworn I heard you say amen this morning, showing some kind of sign that you believe
Did it fall from your tongue without warning or just another trick to fall from your sleeve
Did I hear you say that you believe in angels? I guess I bring the devil out in you
But we can both remove our halos ’cause even an angel needs love too

The woman in you is the worry, the worry in me
The woman in you is the worry, the worry in me

Some things never change; Some things never stay the same
But your so innocent, I’ll take all the blame
How I hate to remember for that means the day is past
Sometimes I wonder if I know her or if I really need to ask

The woman in you is the worry, the worry in me
The woman in you is the worry, the worry in me
The woman in you is the worry, the worry in me
Woman…

Half-man walks with no shadow of life he utters his distaste
No apology is expected
Love carved sorry in his face
Love carved sorry in his face

The woman in you is the worry, the worry in me
The woman in you is the worry, the worry in me
The woman in you, in you, is the worry in me
Woman…
